Applications For My 2 Beefiest Rods - Got A New One Today

Recommended Posts

I have lots of 7 foot and 6'6" rods for many fishing uses and have been just using a 7'3" M/H Veritas for all topwater frogs, heavy jig flipping, and fishing in mats (Louisiana and Texas) on 50 pound Power Pro.... Today at Bass Pro I couldn't resist the 7'6" Heavy BPS Extreme rod at $59 ($40 off)...so what uses would you use the two rods for now...the 7'3 Veritas MH and 7'6" Extreme Heavy...would one be flipping, punching, short distance stuff and one for more versatile heavy needs?  I guess keep a 7.1 range reel on them with 50 or so braid or put 65 on one?

I'm not familiar with either rod but I generally like the shorter, less powerful rod for frogs.   I would use the longer, heavier rod for punching, flipping, C-rigs etc.  50 or 65 lb braid should be fine for both.
